Dear Sue

Thanks again for coming down to give this session.  I think no one was quite sure what to expect and all I have heard from everyone is how much they enjoyed it.  Everyone seemed to get something different out of the event and the fact no has complained is a miracle in itself J.  I really enjoyed the event and definitely learnt some new trick about how to network/navigate between groups which has definitely made me feel more confident when going to events by myself.  Really think you did a fab job with the training and would not hesitate to recommend you to others looking for this type of training course.

Best wishes

Dear Sue

I hope you made it home safely to the UK.  My sincere thanks for coming to Brussels and partaking in our workshop.  The feedback from the students was excellent - they really enjoyed your presentation and they are still talking about it now. I am extremely thankful that you inspired our next generation of scientists and equipped them with the tools for networking. I do hope the interactions with Cuong will be fruitful. I hope we have an opportunity to work again together and wish you the best of luck with the hydroponics systems you are developing.

Best wishes
